Since Wales entered Alert Level 0 the numbers of people visiting and working in the town centre has increased rapidly.
Whilst this is excellent news for our town centre traders who have had a very difficult 18 months it’s not without a problem that’s becoming more and more noticeable and dangerous – the amount of drivers ignoring traffic regulations and parking restrictions.
This is causing concern due to the safety issues it raises and we’re asking everyone to please drive and park in and around the town centre safely and legally.
Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for the Environment and Transport, said, “I was recently shocked at the amount of drivers I saw going the wrong way in one way areas and also parking inconsiderately.
“There’s no excuse for this behaviour which is ultimately dangerous and could result in a serious accident. Please take care and take advantage of the free parking that is on offer after 11am in all council run town centre car parks except Tŷ Pawb.
“Our officers will be on the look out for offenders and I have approached the local police for their help with ensuring traffic regulations are observed by all drivers to ensure our town centre roads and pedestrian areas remain safe.”
